Background: This novel takes place in a small town in Florida. Our main character Lane Fielding left her hometown as soon she graduated high school, and moved to New York. She moved with believing the notion that she would never return home to Florida. But twenty years later, she finds herself with her daughters in tow, back at home in Florida with her mother and father and working at a local dive bar. Lane’s past and the crimes of her father who was once a director of a well known boy’s school, haunts her. This makes Lane an unwelcome guest.

Lane and the town are thrown back into old memories of a serial killer from the past, when two girls disappear-one being Lanes oldest daughter. Lane desperately fights the ghosts of her past on a quest to find out if her daughters disappearance is pay back for the crimes of her father or for her own.

My thoughts: Wow. Wow. Wow. I received this book as a FirstToRead copy through Penguin House, and I must say that I was instantly invested in this story. Learning about Lane’s story and the reasons why she left Florida after high school and what brought her back home was interesting to say the least. But what I liked the most about this story, was the twists and turns that it took. I was a firm believer that I knew who the murder/kidnapper was. The twist that came at the end of the book had me shook (like edges completely snatched).

Lori Roy writes in such a captivating way. There were moments when the story line was a little too slow for my liking, but once I got through those moments, it is such a fantastic read. I would have learned to know what would have happened if Lane would have found out the complete truth.

I would highly suggest you reading this book. Especially if you like family secrets, betrayal, and drama.

Until next time, until the next book
